Soviet Soldiers Training DVD
Even as they emphasize Soviet military skills and preparedness, these four shorts, produced between 1966 and 1981, also show the human faces and stories that undergirded Soviet power. Young trainees undergo rigorous training in tank warfare, as well as air defense and even radiation clean-up; away from the barracks, soldiers visit battle sites from the Great Patriotic War and spend time back home with family and girlfriends. Famed military choirs from Soviet navy and army also make an appearance.
